1.) Delete his number so you’ll stop drunk texting him and so that when you’re crying on the bathroom floor in the middle of the night you won’t call him.
2.) Stop comparing yourself to her. Put sticky notes on your mirror to remind yourself to be who you are because if you round out your edges, you’ll lose your edge.
3.) When you’re thinking about what he’s doing and where he is, don’t let yourself check what he’s tweeting and what pictures he’s posting. You can’t keep hurting yourself while also trying to fix yourself.
4.) Put everything he ever gave you and all the pictures of him kissing you on the cheek in a box and tape it up and throw it in the back of your closet. Some day when it doesn’t hurt anymore you will open it and smile, but for now, don’t you dare touch it.
5.) Buy yourself some new clothes and a new lipstick and go out with your friends even if you don’t want to. You will feel good about yourself when you feel beautiful. Remember that you’re beautiful without the makeup too.
6.) Fill up your schedule with lots of things to do even if you don’t have any obligations. It’s easier when you don’t have a ton of free time to think and think and think.
7.) Stop playing his favorite song and the song you first danced to.
8.) When you take a shower, listen to music that is loud and upbeat and happy, even if you’re not in the mood for it. Dance and sing along to it even if people can hear you.
9.) Write his name over and over on a clean piece of paper and then crumple it up and burn it with a lighter.
10.) Stop drinking or smoking each time you get sad about it. Realize that this usually only makes you feel even worse afterwards.
11.) Kiss boys even if you don’t like them. Sometimes it’s the easiest way to forget about the taste of him.
12.) Remind yourself that if he wanted to come back, then he would. Stop chasing him. Focus on yourself. You were alive before you met him, too.
